Soccer is the world's most popular sport and therefore has been widely studied. Soccer performance is dependent upon a variety of factors such as technical, tactical, psychological and physiological qualities that are required in order to perform in a high level. Most of the studies so far were aiming in describing and defining successful’s player profile. Based on the requirement profile, new "soccer-specific training programs" have been designed to develop players' fitness and strength through soccer-specific drills instead of or as a complement to traditional running training without the ball. This development has created a new research discourse that shows the physiological and performance-wise benefits of soccer specific training such as small-sided games. This study investigates the physiological effects of a soccer-specific training program in a setting of elite women soccer players. Method: 13 (N = 13) elite women soccer players participated in a research setting, which consisted of 15 weeks of soccer specific physical training. The purpose of the study was to evaluate the impact of soccer specific physical training on player's fitness, jumping ability, strength, and sprint capacity. These features have been measured through physiological tests performed before and after the soccer specific pre-season training. Results: A significant improvement was seen in squat jump as well as in 10-meter and 20-meter sprint results. Meanwhile the results from the Yo-Yo intermittent endurance test level 2 showed a tendency towards improvement. Conclusion: The results showed that soccer-specific training improved physical qualities, such as sprint and jump capabilities, of elite women soccer players in this study.
